Letter From Fr. Jean Nov. 2004

Posted by Hello

Dear Parishioners of Christ the King,

As many of you may know, with the permission of Father Daly, there is an organization at Christ the King called Help Brings Hope to Haiti, Inc.. The goal of this non-profit organization is to provide the financial means for impoverished children to attend school and to help the needy in Haiti. In just its first year, this group has enabled me to place 13 children into school.

However, during this year Haiti has faced additional challenges - many of which you have read about in the newspapers. Hurricane Jean hit the country and killed more than three thousand people, including a priest who died during rescue efforts. Most recently, supporters of our former President have come back with a violent movement that has killed over twenty six people since the end of September. It is truly a horrible situation.

The answer to these challenges can be found through an education that defeats fear and replaces ignorance.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart for the children that are attending school due to your generosity and prayers. Please know that I will be praying for you, and thanking God for you. I look forward to seeing you all again on my next visit at the end of November.


Fr. Jean
